From fun nail art to haircare, the staff at Yosemite's Elite Salon and Spa beautifies clients with an array of pampering services. Mani-pedis or gel polishes keep hands and feet polished and pretty, whereas facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and scrubs leave skin healthy and glowing. Staff members also leave skin smooth with waxing services and gild physiques with spray tans.
With more than 5,000 square feet of soothing spa space and a team of trusted technicians, Parisian Day Spa & Permanent Make up Salon pampers its patients with a plethora of skin-rejuvenating procedures. Within its lavender-colored lamp-lit walls, the spa restores clients to stress-free stasis, while serving them refreshments of mimosas, wine, and savory snacks. During the seaweed miracle wrap, skilled swaddle-smiths snugly wrap spa-goers in a seaweed blanket. Upon skin contact, the wrap's valuable nutrients labor to trim inches off of corporeal perimeters, subdue cellulite's dimpling forces, promote detoxification, and provide savvy camouflage for crashing caterpillar birthday parties.
The long corridor at Electric Beach Tanning & Salon is lined with doorways, each one leading into a world without traffic, deadlines, or ringing alarm clocks. Some of the rooms are dedicated to skincare treatments, others to tanning and hairstyling. But in one of them, licensed massage therapist Elaine brings time to a slow crawl while she loosens tense muscles with relaxing massages.
Though Elaine customizes her massages to meet your exact needs, she's especially skilled in Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal techniques. If stress is what ails you, try the relaxing Swedish massage; if you pulled a muscle while barking furiously at the mailman, you'll likely benefit most from a sports massage.
The licensed physical therapists at McGuire Physical Therapy are passionate about leading their clients down a healthy path in life. They offer massage and manual therapy, along with sports-injury prevention and rehabilitation and post-surgery therapy. Sports-centric clients can come and be tested for physical health risks before a sports season starts. The center also offers speed training, low-level lasers, and exercise therapies designed to help speed the healing process.
Licensed massage therapist Ellen is trained in five types of massages, but she doesn't stick to a rigid template when performing them. Instead, she mixes modalities, often switching up styles in the middle of a session in order to accommodate a range of body types and ailments. Whereas Swedish massages sink clients into states of serenity, deep-tissue massages bestow firm kneads to evict tension and entrenched toxins.
Amid soft yellow candlelight, floral tapestries, and rustic wood furniture that contrasts with the white massage tables, Massage by Isabel renders her titular service. The certified massage therapist specializes in modalities such as deep tissue, maternity, sports, and Swedish. She can perform these techniques in 60- or 90-minute sessions, which would take three days if performed by a slow loris.
